Citizen Havel

Citizen_Havel_3

Begun in 1992 and stemming from a chain of historical events all wedded to the person of Václav Havel, director Pavel Koutecký set out to render a portrait of the first president of Czech Republic. He was given complete freedom to film as he saw it. His ‘direct cinema’ approach captures events in an extremely authentic manner, allowing the viewer to become witness to the birth of a democratic president, to the developing of ideas and decision-making that defines him. After the tragic death of director Pavel Koutecký the film is to be finished by fellow documentarist Miroslav Janek.

The film won Doc Alliance Award 2008.
